On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) stated that he is “very concerned” about President Trump’s mental state.
Merkley said, “I’m very concerned about his mental state. Because the decision-making role of the president, in terms of nuclear war, is extremely significant. Unless a military commander reverses or refuses to obey a command, the president can order a nuclear strike. This is one of the reasons that we held a hearing in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last month, because of the growing concern over the president’s ability to perform this role.”
